Rumble on the beach!? Why not! When her one-way romance with Karasuma sours (never get between a man and his curry), Tsukamoto-chan hides her tears by the sea. Hoping that the hot sum will evaporate her sadness and bring her a tan and a man! But in typical School Rumble form, she does not realize that the man of her dreams has always been right next to her. Literally, Harima-kun sits next to her in class and he worships the air she breathes. Ahh, school is a rumble because it at least takes two to fumble or tumble!
Tenshi Ja Nai #3
by Shigematsu Takako
Hikaru is getting used to how people are treating her. She is also getting used to hanging around Izumi. But that does not mean she wants to become a star all of a sudden. So when she is thrust onto the stage for a high school play, she wishes the Beast would just hide from Beauty. Not only does she have rivals for Izumi's friendship going after her, she has people trying to sabotage her stage debut!
Izumi cannot help with that on his schedule. And he sure cannot help Hikaru with her twisted non-existent love life either... Or so he thought!
TRIGUN MAXIMUM (9)
Trigun Maximum #9
by Naitou Yasuhiro
I think it is obvious that Naitou cannot write his way out of a paper bag. That said, with this volume of TriMax he avoids the main character altogether and puts Nicholas Wolfwood in the spotlight. Definitely more angst and style here. But do we want to know more about Wolfwood when so much of Vash's life is still a mystery?!
